DEADPOOL Shoot To Close Vancouver Bridge For Some BADASS Scenes

Despite having a budget smaller than catering on most X-Men movies, as Ryan Reynolds joked very recently, Deadpool will soon be closing a major highway in Vancouver, Canada, where filming is primarily taking place.

According to a filming notice given to locals, the Fox/Marvel production will be restricting the use of the Georgia Street Viaduct from Sunday, April 5, to Thursday, April 16. "The scene involves our hero in a car chase, with stunt fight action on the bridge deck," notes the letter. Also, due to the use of theatrical smoke, lights to simulate a fire, exposed guns and swords, as well as simulated gunfire, the Vancouver Police Department will be on duty during the shoot.

We've already seen Ryan Reynolds and a few other Deadpool cast members on the Vancouver set this past week, so perhaps we'll finally get some action from the production over the weekend and throughout next week when it shuts down the Georgia Street Viaduct.

Based upon Marvel Comics’ most unconventional anti-hero, Deadpool tells the origin story of former Special Forces operative turned mercenary Wade Wilson, who after being subjected to a rogue experiment that leaves him with accelerated healing powers, adopts the alter ego Deadpool. Armed with his new abilities and a dark, twisted sense of humor, Deadpool hunts down the man who nearly destroyed his life. Directed by Tim Miller, while starring Ryan Reynolds (Wade Wilson), Morena Baccarin (Vanessa Carlysle), T.J. Miller (Weasel), with Ed Skrein, and Brianna Hildebrand (Ellie Phimister), the much-hyped Deadpool is scheduled to open in theaters on February 12, 2016.
